Religion is….

I was sent this youtube clip today:

A few nits I would pick:

Jesus had issues with “religious men” not the Religion of Judaism – which is given by God in books like Leviticus.

Jesus absolutely had problems with self righteousness – but he also had huge issues with people’s lack of personal holiness.

The author seems to have his favorite groups to pick on – no telling what his motives are (my guess is he actually is hardest on groups he belongs to) but “there are none without sin, no not one.”


All that aside this clip is a powerful mirror that can expose our own personal fall into self righteousness. It is a reminder that the expression from scripture, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’ likewise means – “I can do no worthy thing without Christ strengthening me.”

The Blessing Life begins when we acknowledge our “inability” and embrace God’s “ability”.

Come with me on this journey and get locked into the 40 Days of Blessing project. If you are not a local there will be daily devotions on this website that you can engage in. If you are local then; get the prayer guide, get in a small group, and (if you don’t have a church family) come and see us on Sunday.

All are welcome to the 10:10 am breakfast at 522 Green St. Thibodaux, La 70301. We will discuss and roll out the program fully at that time.
